Improving literacy with LEGO

School children can overcome literacy struggles with new online learning tool LEGO Education StoryStarter

Seven-year-old Mollie is a Key Stage 2 pupil from St John’s Primary School in Surrey. She struggled with literacy for a couple of years, resulting in a lack of all-round confidence and a fear of simple reading and writing which also understandably worried her parents.

Mollie’s school then introduced LEGO Education StoryStarter – a new learning tool that combines real life LEGO bricks and figures with unique computer software, improving reading, writing, speaking and listening skills, all while having fun.

By embracing StoryStarter, Mollie went from being fearful and anxious of literacy to enjoying the process and used the tool to create and narrate a story full of imagination and creativity – this helped to make a real difference both to her literacy learning and her overall enjoyment of school. She also had the confidence to be filmed narrating and creating her story. 

LEGO Education StoryStarter is the helping hand that kick-starts pupils’ creativity and boosts their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills at Key Stages 1 and 2.

Pupils work together to create and build stories with LEGO bricks and figures, then use the unique StoryVisualizer Software to visualise, write and communicate their work.
